In 2018, MySpace lost over a decade's worth of music uploaded by unsigned bands and solo artists. This loss was blamed on corrupted data during a server transfer gone awry, and it is theorized this may have been intentional so as to free up server space and cut costs to keep the website afloat. This was an absolutely tragic loss for the history of music and art.
What this project aims to do is create an archive for any and every shred of Metal, Emo, and Alternative style music from between 2001 and 2012 that can be recovered. This time frame was considered to be the "wild west" for metal emo and alternative bands, with many gaining national fandom just by uploading a single 3 or 4 song demo to the website. We are searching every nook and cranny of the internet to find these pieces of musical art that would otherwise be forever lost to time and the black hole the Internet has become. No song too short, and no artist too obscure.
Things we are not archiving: Anything that belongs to a still active Record Label, or that are still actively for sale in their original un-altered format (via Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon Music, or any other digital platform). We do not wish to create any issues where copyright may be at play.
